  1. Hi everyone! I'm reapplying to Neuro PhD programs after an unsuccessful round in senior year of undergrad (F2019). I only applied to Pitt, Vanderbilt (waitlisted for interview slot), Columbia, and Johns Hopkins. 2 years later, I now have some more research experience and focus on what I want to do as I'm in my 2nd year in an NIH IRTA postbac. I'm interested in behavioral neuroscience, neuroendocrinology and psychiatry. Any help in judging my stats against the schools I'm applying to would be seriously appreciated! Stats Undergrad: Dual B.S. degrees in Psychology and Co
  2. Hello! My name is Jessica, I earned my Master's degree in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience from London, UK. I am now in the process of applying to PhD Psychology, or Neuroscience, or Neuropsychology programs. After graduating in January 2020, I have been and still am endlessly searching for potential supervisors across Canada and USA. My research interest is in the neuropsychology of memory, cognition, and aging. I am particularly interested to examine the impact of healthy and pathological aging brain on memory processes and the strategies to improve brain function in order to r
  3. Hi, I'm applying to PhD programs this fall 2020, both Biology and Neuroscience programs. After reading through the forums, I realize now that I may not be a very competitive applicant, so am thinking maybe a MS in Bio or Neuro may be the better option for me and then afterwards applying for a PhD. I didn't end up with a very good GPA, I could write about what happened but also don't want to sound like one of "those kids". Once I graduated, I really, really tried to not let my GPA bring me down, so I took some time off and went straight into research. My stats: School: UC Irvine
  4. Hi everybody! I am trying to figure out which of these options is better, and I was wondering if you had any opinions on this as I am really unsure. 1) Masters in Biomedicine at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden 2) Masters in Neuroscience at GSN-LMU Munich in Germany Ultimately, the goal is to do a PhD in neuroscience, maybe at one of these institutions or maybe in the US/UK. Both programs would allow me to complete research projects with their faculty, and in both places, there seems to be fascinating neuro research being done. I am particularly interested in translat
  5. Howdy! I'm currently looking into graduate schools to apply to. My career goal is to become an academic neuroscience researcher, but my specific interests are rather niche and I am having difficulty finding professors who match my interests well. I am interested in the evolution of distinctly human behaviors such as theory of mind, consciousness, and ability to comprehend reality. However, I am particularly interested in studying why mental illnesses occur that distort these uniquely human cognitive processes. I would like to study the genetic basis of psychological disorders such as anorexia
  6. Hi all, I wanted to ask for your opinions on what type of programs I should choose. I am interested in stem cell models for neuropsychiatric disorders; thus, the research is somewhat interdisciplinary depending on the school. I have a pretty strong background in this field with approximately 3 years and a few pending publications. Upon researching graduate schools, I have found that I am interested in faculty in multiple departments. For example, I was looking at two programs at NYU (Sackler): 'Neuroscience & Physiology' and 'Stem Cell Biology.' While looking at both program
  7. Hello everyone, I hope corona do not find you :) . I want to know the funding program for international student accepted into neuroscience PhD at Harvard. Based on the website, the PhD student receive scholarship but still I donot understand the plan for this. I sent an e-mail to the funding officer but no response. As I understand from the website, it is a tiered tuition structure that reduces tuition over time as students progress through their degree programs. Another plan is the fully funded option. Which plan is available for international students? Best regards
  8. I applied for the MSc at the MiNDS Program from McMaster University, but didn't hear anything from them. Did anyone hear anything from those guys? Wondering if its just a delay or if I should just accept the failure
  9. Hi All, I am interested in pursuing a career as a neuroscience researcher. I'm really interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms of mental diseases and recovery. This interest is rather new and comes after working three years in industry as a material science research & development engineer. My educational background is in chemical engineering with a good GPA and research experience. I feel comfortable with my chemistry base but I lack biological education that I'm afraid will hurt me in the application process. I plan to take two courses in introductory biology and two cours
  10. Hi, all! I'm new here and I hope my confusion about the choices of program can get valuable suggestions from you guys! I'll give a brief intro to my background: My undergraduate major is CS with about 3.7 GPA and my previous research experiences are all in computer system, but I'm starting doing some projects in comp-neuroscience last fall. I chose to apply for MS degrees just for some enhancement in my neuroscience background so that I can get somehow stronger background in the field of neuroscience when applying next year. Here are my current choices: I've got admitted t
  11. Hello everyone! This is my first time using this site so I hope I am going about this question correctly - I'm currently an international applicant looking to apply for a PhD in Neuroscience in the United States for Fall 2021 entry. I know this is early but I would like advise early if possible from other applicants, since most colleges state they are unable to let me know of my competitiveness for their program. My background: I am currently about to graduate from a university in the UK you will not have heard of with a 4.0 GPA in Medical Science I've just been acce
  12. I have been wondering about other assessments available to grad students to determine best option for a masters. I went for several neurological tests but no real specific career assessment test. Can anyone recommend one?
  13. Hi, When I submitted my application materials to graduate schools in late November I didn't have any publications. However, before the New Year my colleagues and I are going to submit a paper. Should I email/call the admission departments of the schools I haven't heard back yet to ask if they will accept an updated CV? The first CV I sent did not mention the paper at all. Obviously, a paper submission will make my application stronger, but I worry that asking admissions to accept an update will be frowned upon. Plus, half of them already sent out their interview invites. Than
  14. I'm about to start the second year of my neuroscience PhD, and as I work on my NSF GRFP application I'm trying to decide what primary field best fits my research. My proposed project will relate to human EEG/fMRI activity during working memory tasks, which sounds like it would fit best in the Psychology - Cognitive Neuroscience category. However, my neuroscience PhD is under the biomedical sciences umbrella at my university, so my program would likely match Life Sciences - Neuroscience better. Prior forums have mentioned that some fields have more funding or are more competitive than others, s
  15. Hi all! I have a few questions that are all sort of related to the application process, and then one that'll be more based on my personal experience. To introduce myself and give you all a bit of background, I'm a current undergraduate student at a small liberal arts college who will be graduating in Spring 2020 with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Biology. My areas of interest are animal behavior, cognition, welfare, social behavior, evolution, ecology, etc. I want to start applying to graduate school for a PhD in a related field this fall to enter the Fall 2020 cohort, and ultimate
  16. Ok I'm applying this cycle and panicking. So I'm really interested in neuroscience and research in biomedical science, MEANWHILE, psychopathology has always been fascinating to me but clinical psy is super competitive (more than biomed I think). Only thing I don't like about biomed is that most graduates go to academia/industrial and doesn't really work with patients. They are very different routes and I really can't get both. My gpa is not good (3.4/4.0) and I kinda don't think I stand a chance to get in a good clinical psy programs (Maybe master→phd?). Summarize: More interested: Clini
  17. Hello! It is my first time posting... I was just wondering something about the Neuroscience Ph.D. admissions. I am currently earning a B.S. in Biology from a researched based university and I am also volunteering in some labs within my university. Is it possible to enter a Neuroscience Ph.D. program without publications or posters? Supposing that your GPA and GRE are about average. Any help is appreciated! ☺️
  18. Hi! I'm wondering if anyone has experience in either McGill or University of Toronto’s graduate programme in Neuroscience? Specifically im trying to determine the following: 1) how does the coursework compare? 2) how does the funding differ (grants/TA-ships, etc)? 3) who designs the research project—is this something I design as the student or does the supervisor/department have more say over the matter? 4) what is the graduate student housing situation like? I have looked at these questions online, but it would be great to get the perspective of someo
  19. I'm lucky enough to have to make a choice between both programs (BU vs. Mt. Sinai Icahn School of Medicine for Neuroscience). I would appreciate any help in making this decision. Both programs have great advisors I could work with, the money is about the same, and both are amazing cities (for different reasons). I'm having a lot of trouble deciding. If anyone can offer any advice, anecdotes, or opinions, it would be greatly appreciated. Which school is better for neuroscience? Which school have you heard has a better graduate environment? I'll just choose whatever y'all tell me.
  20. I applied to two different programs at UCSD (Biomedical Science and Neuroscience) and was fortunate to be admitted to both. I've definitely decided to attend UCSD but I'm having trouble choosing which program. They're the same in terms of stipend/benefits and most of my labs of interest are available with either program. The core courses are slightly different but my options for electives will be pretty much the same. I also got a great vibe from both program's students and faculty. For a bit of background on me, I'm interested in studying neurodegerative diseases (including molecular mechanis
  21. Has anyone heard anything about interviews for the OxCam NIH Partnership program?
  22. Hello everyone! I reached out to some professors before I submitted my apps but nowhere near the amount I wanted to. I want to email some faculty now in a "hey I applied and I want you to know because I mentioned you in my application... would love to chat about xxx" kind of way. My question is whether this is appropriate? Or will they view it as a nuisance because it's after the app deadline?
  23. Hi all-- first time posting here so if something is off please be patient with me :) I'm currently in the process of applying to neuroscience Ph.D. programs (hopefully with a computational neuroscience focus). I'm applying straight out of my undergrad and am absolutely terrified... I was convinced by my parents (mistake no 1) to apply to all the top tier schools in my field. Ie: Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, Princeton, NYU, Cornell, MIT. I'm also applying to Boston U, Mt Sinai (aka Icahn School of Medicine) as kind-of backup schools. (Realistically I think they're the only on
  24. Hi! I would greatly appreciate any advice on my competitiveness as an applicant to Neuroscience PhD programs. Here's a bit about me: Graduated from top 20 college with a 3.0 GPA, majored in Neuroscience & Behavioral Biology. I did horribly my freshman & sophomore years-- came from a bad public school system in FL and wasn't prepared for the rigors of pre-med. But after I began my neuroscience courses, my GPA rose exponentially, with a 3.5 GPA in my major. I mentioned this briefly in my statement of purpose, but have had varying advice as to how much explaining I should do in my ap
  25. Calling all neuro applicants for Fall 2019 matriculation! I figured it was time to make a post specifically for us to comment, ask for feedback, and post interview dates and results!
